THANK YOU for visiting our PATREON page! We really appreciate your support.

WHAT IS THE SECRET CITY?


Connection
The Secret City is an Obie Award-winning arts organization that presents sincere and fabulous community celebrations of everyday creative life. We're inclusive, joyful, and loving. Our work - presented in live ceremonies and now-developing new media - extols the creative spirit in every one of us, and softens bigotry, hatred, and intolerance.

Creativity
Part ceremony, part salon, part show, each in-person gathering has a different theme and an ever-changing roster of artists and performers. The thread that connects each Secret City event is the programming and the playful and intentional use of ritual.

Community
Featuring storytelling, live band, performance, food, meditation, The Secret City Singers and joyful community interaction, our events are open to all with a suggested donation. We also provide free childcare and a potluck coffee hour afterward.

The Secret City happens to live regularly in New York City, Los Angeles, and the Hudson Valley, and we aim to bring our joyful celebrations to the larger world in the very near future.

The Secret City Worships Art and Delights in Community
It's a salon. It's a ceremony. It's a show. And, here are some recent responses to our live events:

"Finally, something worth worshiping! A communal, spiritual, art-fest without the g-o-d talk. From a neo-pagan, dionysian, tantric, taoist, atheist, sacred humanist…thank you for creating something worthy of the 21st century.”

"All I can say is O.M.G."

'Another beautiful event - great way to start the week."

"Wow. That was a revelation, a celebration, and an inspiration. Thank every performer, artist, poet, musician, dancer, musician, and trickster who contributed!"


How Can You Help?
You can help The Secret City be sustainable and grow by donating to our Patreon. When you give to us, you're pledging to be a part of the magic we create. This money will go to producing our annual season showcasing phenomenal, relevant artists in today's world. Our events help people make, create, and strengthen their connections to each other, to the community, and to the world.

In addition to giving, we really hope you'll help us spread the word - to your friends, family, on Facebook and Twitter.

Wait, what is PATREON?
Patreon is a fundraising service that allows artists and content creators of all stripes to sustain their work and careers because their fans give regular, monthly support. Consistent, monthly giving makes all the difference for The Secret City!
